I know...but the main website promo is specifically aimed at the Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B crowd. Even in the video.

I get the value of the Sony and all that...I'm just curious why the WA would be specifically marketed to those genres.
I don't think the Sony is/was...it's just considered a high-end mic for studio use.

What is it about the Sony and the WA that make it so coveted by the Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B crowd, in a way that no other mic works as well for those genres?
It's almost like...if you are doing Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B....you need this mic.
